The midterm exam will be in class on Oct 25 (Thu) . The midterm is closed notes, closed book etc. The midterm average is around 33 for undergrads and 39 for graduate students. Students with scores below 25 should seriously consider dropping the class.
There is a newsgroup for the class, "csd.cmsc451". Check it periodically.
